Knitting at Long Last

Knitting at Long Last

It's been quite some time since I've posted here.  In fact, this site had to be rebuilt from a backup due to my own negligence.  After a extensive break from any knitting at all. I'm diving back in with fervor and would really like to attempt to post a bit more frequently.  The posts may, often, be just a photo of my progress on projects. … [Read more...]

Fiber Funnies

While I work to get my life in order enough to get back to knitting here is a new category for this site. A little fiber related humor: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D2FX9rviEhw … [Read more...]

She Lives!

Honestly, It only seems as if I've dropped off the face of the planet. A lot has happened in my life and very little of it is knitting related. I really hope to change that soon. As a way of encouraging myself to get back into the swing of things I gave this poor, neglected, website a face lift! What do you think of the new look? … [Read more...]

Just to prove I still knit

A new direction

I've been struggling, lately, with the fact that this blog has gone by the wayside in a major way. My knitting, in general has slowed to a crawl also. There certainly is not enough happening in my own knitting to keep a blog going. So, I'm going to try something different. Instead of a blog focused on myself I'm going to try for a blog that will gather knitting news from around the web and bring … [Read more...]

Six Months Later…

For anyone that's still with me....thank you. It's been a rocky 6 months. Two surgeries and countless little illnesses in my house have pretty much devastated my blogging....and my knitting. I'm gong to be optomistic and say that now that I'm on the mend from the most recent bad cold and also from surgery on my leg 1 1/2 weeks ago that things will improve and that I will have some decent knitting … [Read more...]

A cartoon brainwashed my child

As with most kids in the US mine watch a bit too much television. The station Noggin, which runs preschool programming 12 hours per day has been playing a song called I don't like candy corn. From the first time I heard it seemed a strange thing to write a song about. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YVp-ZSlE5ic For the last couple of weeks my 3 year old has commented, every time we see … [Read more...]

I'd rather be….

I'd rather be….

Actually there are are lot of places I'd rather be. The one that tops the list today, though, is Rhinebeck. It's 12:18 pm and if I hopped in a car right now I would still have several hours to shop and wander around. There are just a couple of little problems. 1. I have two kids home that would be bored stiff after about 5 minutes. 2. Even if I were brave enough to bring my two kids on the … [Read more...]

Finishing up

Finishing up

Last night I was hit with the mood to finish things. I always have several projects that just need little bits of finishing. Recently, though, the pile had gotten out of control. So I wove ends into 3 pairs of socks and 2 scarves last night. Then I washed it all, laid the socks to dry and blocked the scarves. As is usually the case not all is going as planned; it's an unseasonably humid day … [Read more...]

Stitches East!

Stitches East!

I'm a bit late in posting, as usual! On Friday, October 11 at 5am I slid out of bed and onto a train headed for Baltimore. I had worked out the connections so that I had only a short wait at each of my transfers. The whole trip down went like a dream. I arrived at Penn Station in Baltimore around 10 am and Jill was waiting for me. She surprised me with a gift! 2 Skeins of Salsa. -A DK … [Read more...]
